A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.
The Seagulls of Bodega Bay are brought to you by bright sunshine, and my never ending fascination with the zoom on Sony Too. Can I get this shot??? Is there enough zoom??? Can I hold the camera still (I refuse to carry a tripod, it is that "carrying" thing I object to the most). Can I find a wall or a fence or something to hold Sony more still???
This seagull was a VERY long way away. I think he (or she) may have found a nugget to nibble on. I had watched it reach down into that crevasse and pull out that tidbit.
I have NO idea what they were talking about or to whom, but, it sure looks like they were giving something a piece of their mind. (This is a bit out of focus, but worth sharing, cracked me up!)
This one is definitely mining for nesting materials in that ice plant.
Material secured - - - - take off!
Back at the parking lot, this gull stood right on the hood of the car parked next to us, and proceeded to stare us down!
This little guy, who really is NOT even 1/2 inch long and his siblings have been all over the deck this last week or so. Two times this one, or a sibling, have hopped right into the house. Man has gently removed them back out to the deck area.
During the day, sitting on the deck railing.
At night, hanging on the wet door wall. Taken through the door wall glass, with a flash, the white/silver stuff is the moisture on the outside of the door wall. It was VERY humid.
Taken outside, at night, with flash, he was hanging on the handle of the screen door.
Back in April, 2013, Man and I visited Preston Castle in Ione California thanks to the coordinators of the MOC Spring Rally. I blogged about that visit on Reflections the other day.
There was a small, but, very pretty, garden along side the building, and I snapped a few of the spring flowers in bloom, and since we can never get enough spring flowers in bloom, here they are, a few months late, just before fall hits here in SE Michigan.
You know I love this one, Iris AND purple.
Amaryllis, something I have never grown in my gardens, but, ohhh, so lovely.
I have found I am having so much fun with the camera that there are many more photos taken than will fit on my blog, Reflections From the Fence.
I post flora and fauna photos here. One subject a day, a flora and fauna 365 project. I managed to get past the first 365 and started the second year of this daily exercise. I made it till sometime in November of 2011. And, now, Flora and Fauna is just a regular ole blog, posting when I have something to share and the time to post it.
Some posts are wordy, some are wordless. My goal is to make them as wordless as possible. However, if I find something interesting during the posting/research process, I may share, ok, I will probably share. I hope you find the words and photos to be interesting.
Remember, by clicking on the photo, it will open in a new window, usually a larger view of the image, more detail, etc. Please use your back button to return here to Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
Thanks for stopping by.
A favorite photo from Bellingrath Gardens, near Mobile Alabama
Things I love: Family, Grandchildren, Rving, computers (sometimes, but not when they are being bad), family history, yorkies, techy toys like my iToys, photography.
I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
